Synthesis of Uniform Rare Earth Doped Gd2O2S Sub-micron Sized Spheres Using Gas-Aided Sulfurization and their Optical Characteristics.

Abstract

In this work, we report a detailed study of the synthesis of sub-micron sized Gd2O2S spheres using a two-step process: (1) amorphous precursor synthesis using the solvothermal method where a surfactant was used to control particle morphology, followed by (2) crystallization to form Gd2O2S polycrystalline spheres in a sulfur-rich environment.
